When the dates you set for readings pass, the reading status will change to ‘expired.’
To make the reading available again:
- Select the circular arrow button here:
- Set new dates using the date picker. TAKE CARE to change the default 3 month period to the dates you really want.
- You can add or change other details such as a note and whether the reading is required or not.
Previously approved readings will usually go live straight away. If not, the system may have detected a copyright issue that will be checked out by the eReserve team.
If you don’t need the reading anymore, select the rubbuish bin icon.
At this time we do not have a bulk function for changing dates of multiple readings at once. This will be in a future upgrade.
You can apply any date range you like to a reading. Remember: access is still controlled by students having access to Blackboard. For standard papers we recommend:
|Semester 1||1 January||30 June|
|Semester 2||1 July||30 November|
|Summer School||1 January||Last day of exams|
|Full-year||1 January||30 November|
Tip: if a paper is offered in multiple teaching periods in a year, set the dates once to cover all of them. E.g. BSNS105 is offered in Summer School and Semesters 1 and 2 so just put 1 Jan to 30 Nov.
